Historic Day at QueerJoe
Can anyone guess what this might mean?
Longest WIP Ever
I bought the yarn for this project in November 0f 2002…right around the same time I started blogging at QueerJoe.
Some reader/enabler told me about a deal on this yarn…175 yards per hank at $1 each. I bought around 60 hanks and on US1 needles, started knitting the never-ending bedspread.
The WIP has comforted three different cats (Gage, Nico and now Finn)…in fact, Nico used to enjoy nesting in this project so much, I made him a miniature version of the blanket to wrap him in before he we buried him…it made me feel a little better at the time.
Last night, I started binding off this blanket. It’s about six feet in length now.
I still have a lot of work to go…the edging, the sewing-in of a LOT of ends and washing and blocking, but beginning to bind off this project is a major milestone for me and anyone that’s followed this blog for the last 12 years.
Other Current Knitting
I have done a bit more work on the latest blanket.
While I think I need to buy a bit more of this yarn for a blanket the size I’m looking for, I am very pleased with how this is turning out.
